I’m 42 years old and live in Monterrey, Mexico. I heard of ChiRunning from a friend of mine (living in Atlanta) who recommended the book (English version). It was in October of 2010 when I started to read the ChiRunning book and I rapidly bought the idea. I’ve always thought that technique was very important o achieve better results n everything we do.
So, I started to practice it as I moved forward in my reading (I already ran just to be healthy). Some weeks later, I bought your Spanish version of the book (better for me because there are a lot of body’s anatomy terms not commonly used and known to me) in the USA and continued to read and practice the technique.
My initial reason for interest in ChiRunning was from the second title of the ChiRunning book, ” A Revolutionary Approach To Effortless, Injury-Free Running.”
With that said, I want to tell you that last year, November 2011, I ran the Nuevo Leon’s half marathon in 1:46 and felt like I could have run even more. I had never thought to run something like this because I always just ran to be healthy. But, a friend of mine gave me the challenge. I finished the race pain and injury free and it was the first time in my life that I had run 21K!
I would love to participate in some of your classes, but there are no instructors here in Mexico. I also think ChiRunning is not yet known in Mexico… I’m promoting it every time I can, and some friends of mine have already acquired the book!!
Please let me know when you have plans to go to Mexico, I would love to sign up for one of your workshops! Thanks.
